Are you a creative practitioner who is engaged with Social Practice?

Along with our partners In-Situ, we’re inviting applications from individuals to join the second iteration* of The Faculty.

The Faculty North provides the opportunity to develop your ideas and discuss experience in a collaborative setting. Considering the political, the social, the economic and the environmental with a care-full approach, this programme employs arts-based methods of learning and exploration.

Delivered online due to Covid, it will cover Context and History, Practice and Skills, Ethics, Ethos and Politics, Planning and Presenting a Project, Self-care and Survival.

Eight online sessions (Tuesday mornings, 1.5 to 2 hours each)

All sessions recorded, transcribed, and made available for participants to watch back later

Introductory sessions, group tutorials, optional ‘homework’, and a virtual interactive platform for everyone to collaborate, reflect and share ideas'

Calling all Northerners

Because of Covid-19 restrictions we have taken the difficult decision to limit the geographical scope of participants to the North of England and people who identify with being Northern.

We are anticipating that we will follow this Faculty round with a second, UK wide round, later in 2021.

Supporting creative practice and well-being

The (online) Faculty North aims to support creative practice and well-being, offering its students the space and time to share experiences, reflect on practice, and exchange ideas with colleagues and peers, particularly during a global pandemic which has affected all of our lives.

To support this aim, each student will receive a bursary of £500 to attend.

*The Faculty was originally developed as a partnership between four Creative People and Places projects, (Heart of Glass, Super Slow Way, Leftcoast, Creative Scene) and In Situ. It ran as a pilot in 2016 with 24 artists collaborating on weekend residentials in Pendle, Dewsbury, Blackpool and St Helens.
